No picture. We had a storm in the area two nights ago. The next morning when I tried to turn on the tv we didnt have a picture. You can hear it click like it is going to come on but nothing. On the bottom front of the tv a light is flashing saying stand by/timer. Any suggestions???

Your set may be fried, or at least the power supply or fuse(s). If you feel like you could work on it, open up the power supply (if it's outside of the TV) or open the set itself (if it's an internal power supply). Look for the fuse(s) (the little glass tubes) and pull them out and check them one at a time (in case they're different values and you forget which one went where). If any of them have a broken filament (the little wire inside of them), especially if they have any black soot or brown-ish stuff in them, then the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced with an identical value fuse.
DO NOT REPLACE FUSES WITH DIFFERENT VALUE ONES. I can never stress that enough. On the metal band, it says the current it allows. Match it up with another fuse (it'll be the same size and everything) and bam, that could fix your problem.
If it's not a fuse, then perhaps the filter capacitors in the power supply are shot. If you don't know what they look like; they're cylinders that are usually placed right by where the cord comes into the supply. If any of them have a hole or any black or brown residue around the bottoms, then they're blown and need to be replaced with identical ones (or at least the same capacitance and max voltage). Be careful with capacitors. If they're put in the wrong way, are shorting out against anything else, or have a max voltage that's too low, they can blow immediately and sometimes violently. I've seen them blow out and have electricity arcing across them, frying everything around it.

Red light goes on and off

Needs the button put back into place. Look under the cabinet to see if there is an access panel below the switch, would go for all external controls. There would be a chassis with all the controls mounted to it.
Pull the plug before doing any repairs.
Look to see what it would look like in it's normal position. Something has moved out of place that holds the switch to the panel. Very tedious if you have to remove the whole housing.

Power outage / TV won't come on.

Call the manufacture tech support and ask them for their rep in your area. If it is possible for them to reset your TV I am sure that they will.

From your description, most of the time there is damage to the power supply, or one of the areas in the set.
